Aorta: The arteries(aorta)carry the pulse wave from the heart. If they aren't pulsing, chances are you're dead. If you're dead you don't have to do anything. If your aorta is pulsing normally, you don't have to do anything. If you're anxious let your doctor check your pulsing aorta but unless its abnormally enlarged, there is unlikely to be a problem.
